Thai Police Arrests Wanted Algerian Hackers in the US

24-year-old Algerian National Hamza Bendelladj has been arrested by Thai police at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport while transiting from Malaysia to Egypt. Laptops, a tablet computer, a satellite phone and some external hard drives were found in the suspect’s possession.

According to authorities from Thailand, cited by the Bangkok Post, Bendelladj is wanted by the US Federal Bureau of Investigations on suspicion of hacking into private accounts in over 200 banks and other financial organizations from all around the world.

Authorities believe that the man made millions from his illegal transactions.

He will be extradited to the US state of Georgia where an arrest warrant has been issued on his name.

As you can clearly see from the picture taken after the arrest, the man doesn’t seem to be too concerned about the fact that he could spend many years behind bars.
